This record is one of great historic properties and let's us hear the voice of the greatest soprano of the 19th century, when you hear this you hear a voice that was heard for the first time in 1851 and she sang for President Buchannon in the 1850's and sang for some of the greatest composers and personalities and here in the new century we hear the voice that was heard by those over 150 years ago, isn't recorded sound amazing?
